Default Tasker - GPS Auto off if no fix

I have a task that enables my GPS with a voice command when I get in my car.

The deal is that I want my GPS to automatically turn off if there is no fix in a certain amount of time.

Does any one have a profile with something like this?

Unless you're in the middle of a building, wouldn't your GPS generally always have a fix?

Couldn't you just add another voice command to turn it off?

That is exactly what I want....when I park my car and get in the building, I want my GPS to turn off without any command.

Not exactly what you want, but you can try this. Open Maps to turn on gps and close it to turn off. Once you reach your destination simply close the maps app and gps will turn off automatically after 2 minutes. You can edit the list of apps as you see fit.
